Canon has holes in its lineup, including this one. Canon will fill it if it finds it profitable to do so after the higher priority lenses are released.
That would require Canon to eat humble pie and compete directly with existing third-party options, something they've never been willing to do.

They'd rather ignore the massive dominance of 150-600 lenses and release a 100-500 just so they don't seem to be copying Tamron. It's all about self-image.

Nikon shooter here. They used to include the apertures for all lenses up until the Oct 10, 2019 version. Maybe now they need more flexibility
Still in love with my F2 !
That's why, even as a Canon and Leica user, I hope for Nikon to succeed, and to become number 2 again. Their new mirrorless lenses are absolutely convincing, not to mention the :love:500mm.
They have the means to succeed!

There's never been a 28 L, sadly !
f/2.8 and f/5.6 comparisons of EF28mm 2.8 IS with EF24-70 2.8L II at f/2.8 and f/5.6 show that this is not a problem


Unless you wish for a f/2, f/1.8 or a f/1.4 version which is somethin different

If you mean the 500mm PF f/5.6 I totally agree with you although it is a perfect match for D500 and D850 which do not need an adapter. I do have these 3 items and I love them :love:

I dropped about seven grand in two days this year on gear. 2021 will be hard pressed to beat that!
A £12,000 to £15,000 f/4 super tele would if you wanted one. I expect even the R1 and Z7 will be £6500ish given the cost of the D6 and 1DXiii. My issue is it isn't just going to be the big lens, its a body to go with it if I go back to Canon.

My 2020 was quite light on camera stuff: Z6 for £1399, 50 and 85 f/1.8 S lenses when on sale, renting the 500 PF for £200. The 70-200 S was the biggest buy, but I think it is coming next year.

Canon will do something similar but with a twist and charge more because they can and people will buy it, if they choose to compete in this space at all. Do you know that the 150-600s sell more than the 100-400/500 variants? Seriously, Canon makes what it makes. CR is giving you insight as to what they Canon may release going into 2022. The list does not have your 150/200-600. Find another solution if you need it.

You're operating at a considerably higher level than I am, that's for sure. R5 was my first fullframe, ever. And I tend to take pictures on vacations and the like, or the occasional special occasion, rarely wanting more than 400mm. (And as I think about it, I should add the 24-105 L to the total, for another $1500 (it came with an RP I've yet to actually use), but then it wouldn't be just two days.)

As it happens, I spent more on camera gear in those two days (plus the 24-105) than I had in my lifetime up to that point. Easily. As a matter of proportions, that's probably never going to happen again. Anyhow, I look forward to seeing the good things you do with that super tele.

I mean after I buy 'a' big lens, thats me set for 30 odd years. It is just the nature of the subjects I want to shoot. I canny ask a fox too sit still while get close and personal with a 85mm.

No, you certainly can't! I understand the utility of long lenses for the sorts of things you do. If I found myself forced to try, I'd be putting extenders on my 100-400 and not get nearly the same results.

What is absurd about it? I agree and have both the 100-500 and the 800 f11 for exactly the same reasons. I can see how this may not suit everyone, but for those who prefer versatility and only occasionally need the super telephoto, this is preferrable than a 200-600.
Exactly my choice !

A roadmap like this from Canon would help a lot with purchasing decisions. Nikon Z has had a public roadmap from day one so I knew what I was buying into even if there where a few surprises on the way. I have no idea if buying into RF is good just now because I just have rumours about superteles.

On Nikon I new a 200-600 and 100-400 where coming and now I know a 400 and 600 prime is also coming, I've known for over a year a 105mm macro is coming... that's a pretty important lens for wildlife when mammals are playing hide and seek.

All Canon have to do is say a 400, 500, 600 are coming... preferably that 500 being a f/5.6 and I could start looking at it objectively. As it stands, I just have to put money away and aim for the Z 600 unless the R1 and 600 are announced sooner and just outdo or undercut Nikon before the money is saved. I'll get a 500mm PF till then, it is isn't going to turn useless when the big lenses and pro bodies come out.

Why are Canon cameras so ugly and overpriced?? It would be so easy to switch otherwise - those RF L lenses, Sigma probably coming soon, excellent AF and IBIS...

Canon has a 400DO and Nikon a 500PF. I am thinking that maybe a Canon 600 5.6DO would be a very interesting and tempting lens.
Sometimes I wonder which is better, a 400 DO f/4 or a 500 PF f/5.6. The 500 is about my good starting point, but if a 400 had a 1.4x and 2x and was just as sharp. But the 400 DO is something close to 2x the cost regardless.
